The duo of Hannah Walker and Jamie Elliot have signed to Nettwerk Records, and it's through this label that they will issue For You on June 29.

    Paul Weller is currently touring his 12th solo album, Saturns Pattern, and his first of two NYC stops happened on Friday (6/12) at Terminal 5. The new LP (streamable below) has been very well recieved and he didn't shy away from playing most of it at T5. For fans of Weller's long solo career, this was a real treat. For folks hoping to hear lots of songs by The Jam and The Style Council, however, there was only one scrap -- "A Town Called Malice" closed out the show.

  • Cherry Glazerr – “Sip ‘O Poison”

    The second installation of Adult Swim’s 2015 Singles Series is one from noise-pop trio Cherry Glazerr called “Sip ‘O Poison.” Clearly drawing influence from Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hannah and Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, lead singer and guitarist Clementine Creevy’s vocals rip through this one minute and thirty-second lo-fi jam. Creevy (aka Clembutt) isn’t even 20 years […]

  • NXNE's 'The One That Got Away' Exhibit Enlists Damian Abraham, Brendan Canning, Shad

    NXNE is poised to take over Toronto next week, but there's more to the festival than the massive musical lineup. Organizers have unveiled details of a new collaborative art exhibit titled The One That Got Away that brings together musicians and visual artists, and will be on display during this year's fest.   The exhibit features pieces of art inspired by "unused" lyrics. Those neglected words come courtesy of Canadian musicians like Brendan Canning, Hannah Georgas, July Talk, Jazz Cartier, Shad, Rich Aucoin, Damian Abraham, Bry Webb, Slim Twig, Hollerado and tons more.

  • Unknown Mortal Orchestra: 'I can't tell what I'm supposed to keep private now'

    New Zealand-born Ruban Nielson recently revealed how a polyamorous relationship spurred UMO’s latest album, Multi-Love – and landed him in hot water – but the LP is much more than the sum of its body parts

    There’s a scene in the second season of Girls where Lena Dunham’s Hannah Horvath says she needs to “experience things for the story” in order to write the book for “her generation”. She goes on to takes a face full of drugs and dances in a club without a bra. I’m reminded of this scene when talking to Ruban Nielson, linchpin of Portland psych-funk band Unknown Mortal Orchestra. He’s gained something of a reputation for chasing adventures. His first and second albums positioned him as an acid-tinged gear freak who didn’t sleep and liked to party hard, with songs inspired by insomnia and self-medication. “Jake [Portrait, the band’s long-standing bassist] and I would get…

    Florence and the Machine were the first act to put on a show worthy of a headliner. Drenched in warm golden light, Florence hopped around on one leg as she led the crowd in sing-alongs of hits such as What the Water Gave Me and Shake It Out. Her performance felt quite reserved compared to that of St Vincent, who brought out a pink Aztex-style pyramid and two backing dancers in chrome jumpsuits before putting on the performance of the day. Tracks like Marrow felt hugely aided by her band's saturated, chunky and almost shoddy-sounding synths, while St Vincent danced in sync with her troupe, who tottered around like Daryl Hannah's dying replicant in Blade Runner. The crowd were addressed as "citizens of New York city" and she stopped proceedings for a Thomas Pynchon-esque short story about an imagined storm in New…
